I took a short hike in Madera Canyon on 9/19/09. Madera Canyon is located in the Santa Rita Mountains, Green Valley, AZ. It is still HOT here but at the higher altitude the temps are a lot more comfortable!

A long-time passion, I’ve held a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. Capturing “the moment” is my goal, whether it be people, wildlife or a beautiful Arizona sunset. I am originally from NYC but now live in the desert southwest.
Thank you for viewing my images… I hope that you enjoy!
